Pietro Ferrero, who owned a bakery in Alba, Piedmont, an area known for the

production of hazelnuts, sold an initial batch of 300 kilograms (660 lb) of "Pasta
Gianduja" in 1946. This was originally a solid block, but Ferrero started to sell a creamy
version in 1951 as "Supercrema"
In 1963, Ferrero's son Michele Ferrero revamped Supercrema with the intention of
marketing it throughout Europe. Its composition was modified and it was renamed
"Nutella". The first jar of Nutella left the Ferrero factory in Alba on 20 April 1964. The
product was an instant success and remains widely popular.[3]
In France, senator Yves Daudigny proposed a tax increase on palm oil from 100 to
400 per metric tonne. At 20%, palm oil is one of Nutella's main ingredients and the tax
was dubbed "the Nutella tax" in the media.[4]
World Nutella Day is February 5.[5]
On 14 May 2014, Poste italiane issued a 50th anniversary Nutella commemorative
stamp.[6][7] The 70 Euro cent stamp was designed by Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello
Stato and features a jar of Nutella on a golden background.[6] Ferrero held a Nutella
Day on 17 and 18 May to celebrate the anniversary.
Ingredients[edit]
The main ingredients of Nutella are sugar and palm oil,[9] followed by hazelnut, cocoa
solids, and skimmed milk. In the United States, Nutella contains soy products.[10]
Nutella is marketed as "hazelnut cream" in many countries. Under Italian law, it cannot
be labeled as a chocolate cream, as it does not meet minimum cocoa solids
concentration criteria. Ferrero consumes 25% of the global supply of hazelnuts.
An older recipe, Gianduja, was a mixture containing approximately 71.5% hazelnut
paste and 19.5% chocolate. It was developed in Piedmont, Italy, after taxes on cocoa
beans hindered the manufacture and distribution of conventional chocolate.
